SEPTA's Warminster Line has temporarily suspended service between Warminster and Willow Grove as police investigate the death of a teenage boy struck by a commuter train near Hatboro.
The boy was walking near the rails about 2:30 p.m. just south of the Pennsylvania Turnpike overpass when the northbound train hit him, said Jerri Williams, spokeswoman for SEPTA.
The boy was rushed to Abington Memorial Hospital where he died of his injuries, Williams said.
The 20 to 30 passengers were still aboard the train at 3:30 p.m., but Williams said shuttle buses were en route to complete the journey.
The fatality was second on the Warminster Line this year. Six people total were killed by trains this year while trespassing on SEPTA's regional rail lines.
